Guess what you can do as a citizen and tourist to reduce water pollution:

  • Choose, when possible, products made of biodegradable or recycled materials instead of plastics biodegradable dental floss rather than nylon; wooden hair combs or clothes pegs; glass bottles; cotton napkins; etc.
  • Avoid disposable products like plastic straws, shopping bags, water bottles, crockery and cutlery.
  • Store food without plastic containers: prefer glass containers, an inert material that, unlike plastic, does not release any contaminants.
  • Avoid soaps and cosmetic products that contain microplastics: if they contain polyethylene, polypropylene or polyvinyl chloride โ€“ these are all plastics.
  • Buy unpackaged products: buy fruit, vegetables, cheese, meat, fish sold loose/by weight, and โ€œon tapโ€ detergents in order to minimize the packaging.
  • Follow the waste and recycling procedures in your city or community.
  • Engage with your shops and supermarkets and your municipality to urgently reduce unnecessary plastics.
